Oh, The Musically Talented....

   As a person who enjoys music and has made it a big part of my life, I'm elated when I find a genuinely talented musician.  I had vocal scholarships for college, played the piano, weakly learned guitar, and had weekly and, at times, daily vocal lessons.  That said, I know and love music.  If you've ever heard Jim Gaffigan's comedic skit on ugly people he said, "If you see a beautiful singer, you listen and enjoy the act, so to speak.  If you see an ugly performer, your first thought is, 'wow, they must be talented!'"  Isn't this so true!!!!  
   Well, I was complaining about the Britney Spears' production-like society we've come to obsess over versus real talent and an appreciation for music.  Whilst I was complaining, my husband asked if I'd actually ever seen Lady Gaga play the piano. My answer was,  "No, I'm sure it's all recorded anyways."  Was I wrong folks!  This "Lady" who I didn't especially care for or dislike prior to watching this youtube video now has my respect.

I love finding the Real McCoy and she can play and sing....WELL!!!!  I know shocker.  She said in an interview that she appreciates music, fashion, and art in all it's forms.  I think this is part of her love of unusual costumes and controversial videos with her sexual dances and lyrics.  I've got to hand it to her, she's fun to watch and she's good at what she does!

Here's some fun fashion choices of Lady Gaga:

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend filled with music, art, fashion, food, and most importantly, shopping.

I'm on the fence about her. My (13) boys don't like her. LOL, they say she's too weird. Thanks for the video. I'm going to check it out.

Happy Friday!
